Heartland Community College May Day honors our troops

Send a link to a friend

[May 02, 2008]  May Day brings memories of making cone baskets, filling them with flowers, leaving them on doorknobs or giving them to someone special. It was a way to show appreciation, consideration and kindness to others. Those fond memories were a catalyst at the Heartland Community College Lincoln Center to declare May Day a day to honor, support and appreciate our troops.

The staff, students and faculty honored the troops by wearing yellow and hanging yellow ribbons, bows and flags. It was a way to declare thanks to the troops and their families for their sacrifices and service in defending our freedom. John Long, a student at Heartland Community College and a member of the Army Reserve, represented our troops in the observance. A yellow mum plant was presented to Deborah Givens, an adjunct instructor at the Lincoln Center, in honor of her son who is presently serving in Iraq.

The Heartland Community College Lincoln Center gives thanks to all for their sacrifices and service to our country. Let freedom ring. We salute our troops.
